Bug#569203: ITP: parti -- an experimental window manager, a WM library, and screen for X

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Michael Schutte <michi@uiae.at>

* Package name    : parti
  Version         : 0.0.6
  Upstream Author : Michael Schutte <michi@uiae.at>
* URL             : http://code.google.com/p/partiwm/
* License         : GPL ≥ 2
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : window manager library for Python and “screen for X”

The source package will build binaries for “wimpiggy”, a Python library
which tries to “make writing […] window managers just as easy as writing
an app in PyGTK+”, and “xpra” (X Persistent Remote Applications), a tool
which makes it possible to detach and re-attach X programs in the
fashion of GNU Screen.

At the moment I don’t plan on offering a .deb for “parti” itself, an
experimental tabbing/tiling window manager based on wimpiggy, as it
doesn’t appear productively usable to me at the moment.

Given that the three individual projects found in the upstream tarball
are small in size and released together (with common version numbering),
I don’t think that it makes sense to split the tarball.
